Things To Consider For Your New Kitchen

At Teammax, our goal is to provide you with the renovation of your dreams. We will run that extra mile in order to give you perfection.

But don’t let us tell you what perfection is. Tell us. How can your kitchen change your life for the better?

Designing your own kitchen should be one of the most exciting renovation projects you can undertake, however it can also be difficult to get it right, which is why our team will take you through each step, making sure you are happy before you proceed.

This article aims to help you make those decisions, with some key choices you need to make in the design of your new bespoke kitchen.

Identify The Purpose Of Your Kitchen
AnswerWhat do you use the kitchen for? Is it somewhere you entertain guests? Are you combining your cooking space with a chill out area, or a space for the kids to play and do their homework? On the contrary, perhaps you would prefer to keep this space separate and have a simply defined cooking with dining space?

This really should be the first thing you identify before you move forward as this will affect your choice of not only the types of cabinets and surface tops but the number of them. It will also inform your choice of flooring, lighting, heating and layout plan… a great place start then!

Plumbing And Electricity
AnswerOnce we have the purpose and layout of your new kitchen decided, the practical side must come on in. Anything is possible, what you need to decide is what appliances you want and where you want them.

Necessities such as plug points should be spread and placed for ease of use, giving you access to power where you need it and without cluttering your workspaces. Generally items like sinks and dishwashers are kept close together to ensure simple plumbing requirements, however each kitchen is different and we can always provide a solution!

AnswerOnce we know where everything is going, we can decide how best to light it. Lighting can be used functionally, but also to create mood and atmosphere. Consider, when choosing your colour scheme and layout if you want to highlight a worktop with a separate spotlight or create some backlight along your cabinets with LED’s to create that ultra-modern look.

It’s useful to consider operating these lights on separate circuits in order to light the room in separate zones – thereby fully utilising and appreciating the space.

Of course, we don’t forget the power of natural light. Natural light can completely alter the energy in a room, so we are able to provide you with a cost effective opportunity to increase the amount of natural light into your kitchen – including the fitting and we can guide you on whether to consider extending the room or increasing the size of the window.

Ultimately, it’s all up to you.

AnswerTeammax Ltd has long been recognised as a tiling specialist, having been named as one of the recommended installers of Domus Group, a reputable and bespoke tile supplier, we can guide you through this specialist process. Is it the sharp precision of a porcelain tile you want to flow through the heart of your home or a softer, more relaxed finish on a ceramic tile?

Precision is really what sets us apart from any competitor, be it the spacing or the symmetry through the walls and floor. At Teammax we are keen to point out that each millimetre makes a difference and the quality of a particular tile should form part of your decision, but we can give you practical guidance from an experienced member of our team.

AnswerWhile the kitchen is undergoing a makeover it is worthwhile addressing the heating situation. If you want to free up some space, underfloor heating is an ideal solution. While it is a slightly higher investment, its adds a touch of bespoke luxury to your design, removes any space pinching radiators and can be cost effective to run.

If this is not the route you want to go, then have a think about the positioning of your radiators. Perhaps tall wall mounted radiators will work better for small spaces, or something closer to the dining space, in a larger kitchen.

AnswerWe will assist you in choosing the correct worktops for your requirements. So many factors come to the fore in choosing worktops but we have experience installing quartz, marble, wood, stainless steel – this a variable unique to your kitchen and it is your preference that will influence the end result.
AnswerThe correct storage space is essential to the integrity of a finished kitchen. Consider the proportions of your room, islands don’t fit well with all spaces and you can create more space in the room if you consider floor to ceiling cabinets. Corner carousels help you claim back space between cabinets which would otherwise have been rendered void and don’t forget how you plan the finish. Colours in the furniture complimenting the tiling on the walls, or the floor?

Mix things up, we will help you source furnishings from different places to create your own individual bespoke luxury kitchen.

AnswerGetting a new boiler can appear to be a strenuous decision, but you don’t need to be a plumbing expert to be able to decide which boiler should be used in your home.

Our experts can help you evaluate the space, taking into consideration the house, including the number of taps which will be likely running at the same time, or perhaps you have a smaller property without space for a boiler room. We can help you install a brand new boiler inside a kitchen cabinet for example, running all the pipes discreetly and safely.

This is a summary designed to help you as you consider redeveloping your kitchen.

There will obviously still be many questions you will have and here at Teammax, we have experts who are able to guide you to the finished kitchen you truly want, giving you a vibrant pulse at the heart of your home.
